16 Brand Toks Mask Packs Review

A few months ago, Mecca Maxima announced they were selling new face masks, for a record low of just $2 each! For anyone that’s set foot in a Mecca store, you’ll know it’s pretty rare to score anything under the $5 mark. Here are my thoughts on these cheap Korean face masks.

I rarely get to try Lush’s bath range, so when I stayed in a hotel with a bath, I raced down to Lush to pick out a bath bomb and bubble bar to test out. After looking at which bath bombs looked the prettiest, as well as having a scent I enjoyed, I settled on The Experimenter for my first bath art.

Mario Badescu Aloe Vera Toner Review

Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater Review

I discovered this little bottle of skin-loving goodness when at the Brisbane Mecca Maxima Grand (re)Opening. I’ve used almost a third of the bottle in just over a month, so that’s a good indication of how this review is going to go!

Don’t think I’ve used up so much of a skincare product so fast!

Mario Badescu is a cruelty-free skincare brand that has pricing close to drugstore products, but performs as well, if not better than high end items! I selected the smaller sized bottle (118mL) and paid only $9 AUD, which is really cheap for what you get. They also have a 236mL size for $17, which I’ll be purchasing next time.

The most important ‘must-have’: cruelty free status

It smells of rosewater and feels beautiful against the skin. I love using this as an all-over mist throughout the day, and I definitely feel like it boost my skin’s appearance. I’ve also noticed less breakouts while using this product.

If you love good, easy, cruelty-free skincare, I highly recommend trying this. It can be used to set makeup, soothe or give skin a quick boost. You can spray it on your face, hair or body, making it the perfect all-rounder skincare product.
